Movie Info

Zimbabwe is at a crossroads. The new leader of the opposition party, MDC, Nelson Chamisa, is challenging the old guard, ZANU-PF, represented by the acting president Emmerson Mnangagwa, also known as 'the crocodile'. The election will be the ultimate test for both the ruling party and for the opposition. How will they interpret the principles of democracy in a post-Mugabe era -- in discourse and in practice?

Critic Reviews for President

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (15) | Rotten (2)

  • Democracy, after all, is always a work in progress - and "President" leaves the impression that Zimbabwe's work has a long way to go. Part three can't come soon enough.

  • It is a thrilling, enraging film, and its intimate access to Chamisa and his advisers is extraordinary.

    February 10, 2021 | Full Review…
  • President exudes a passion for politics that corrals viewers into the relatively uncharted political territory of Africa. Yet it is an environment that will feel oddly familiar to election junkies...

    February 2, 2021 | Full Review…
  • A devastating, heartened report of democracy in peril against a dictator, a report that suddenly feels all-too familiar to Americans.

    January 30, 2021 | Full Review…
  • It's the testimony of ordinary folk - the election monitor beaten over the head with an iron bar, for example - that makes Nielsson's film so chilling.

    January 30, 2021 | Full Review…
  • Politics consistently creates its own tragedy and comedy, and this vital, devastating documentary knows when simply to stand in the crowd.
